Arkansas River Tailwater - below Pueblo Reservoir

Tip of the week 

Typical tailwater nymphing rigs apply here as well. However, some fish like to cruise the film in search of trapped emergers, so a greased leader systems also pays dividends. Low flows now tend to congregate larger fish into the rock formations.

Seven-day forecast 

good fishing but crowded conditions. Fish between 10 and 2. Remember the fly fishing tournament is Feb. 7. I would not recommend fishing that weekend unless you are Iin the Tournament. The Frostbite Tournament is TU sponsored and the money is used for River improvements, so be supportive if you like to fish here
